Evaluation and Training

He is friendly and curious but can be a bit shy and stand offish as he gets to know his handlers.  He is skittish with fly spray and new things.  He picks up his hooves, you can groom and brush him.  Once he inspects a newly introduced item he will come around and settle quick.  IF (were told from previous owner he was) he has been ridden in the past it was a brief time and probably has been sometime ago.  He needs much more handling and desensitizing before he can be properly started. 

He’s being started under saddle and his trainer has been riding him in arenas and off the property.  We’re excited to see how they progress!
